Edison is married with seven children who are all going to school plus two orphans whose parents died of Aids. Edison operates different businesses which include trade in waragi (local brew) and an agricultural produce business he has been running since 2008 as the major source of income to look after the family.

Edison has applied for a loan of 3,000,000 shillings to add needed items for his brew business.

Edison's dream is to educate his children up to higher institutions of learning and also improve on the living standards of the family.
Edison is challenged of the changing weather conditions and the seasonality of the produce, which are affecting his business.
